Just did mine the other day. You're going to have to take off the side fairings and the enginge mount thats under the frame in order to get the other two out. That means the mirror, upper, mid, and lower fairing along with the engine mount, and all other little connectors that's going to be in the way. Its a long drawn out process..but it feels so good when you ride knowing you did it..

    O sorry..no special tool. I don't have the tool kit for my bike. I just used a regular spark plug socket w/extentions to get it done..

The tool kit with the bike should be good enough,no need to lower the engine, to make things easier when you get them undone find a piece of rubber hose that fits over the sparkplug and use it to pull the plugs out and install them ...then tighten them with the plug tool.

Hi, Tyler and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.

Whats the firing order for a 1990 Kawasaki 600 zx ninja.


The ZX6, as with most four-cylinder motorcycle engines, is mounted transversely in the frame. When sitting on the bike, the cylinders are numbered 1-2-3-4 left to right.

Firing Order: the firing order is 1-2-4-3. There is no distributor for the engine, as ignition is controlled electronically.

Extra Ignition Information: there are only two ignition coils for this engine. Each coil has two spark plug wires. One coil fires cylinders 1 and 4. The other fires cylinders 2 and 3

WHAT IS THE SPARK PLUG ORDER FOR A KAWASAKI NINJA 900 1985


Left coil feeds 1 and 4...right coil feeds 2 and 3...as long as you stick to this it doesn't matter which lead goes to which plug. Left coil will have one short lead and one long...short =1...long = 4. Right coil leads will be about even in length...doesn't matter which goes to 2 or 3.
It's a wasted spark system so plugs 1 and 4 fire together...2 and 3 fire together...only 1 cylinder in each pair will be compressed and ready to fire when the spark happens, the other will be empty and coming on to it's inlet stroke...

I have a zx6r f1 1995 ninja. I recently had the downpipes changed on the bike. Now the bike struggles to go past 40mph. I have taken it to a dyno specailist and he as checked the carbs etc and hey are...


Hi, Melvin for openers you need to seek out an experienced professional technician that knows what he's doing, this isn't rocket science and Dyno's are a waste of time, money, and are brutal on your engine and if there is a catastrophic engine failure while on the Dyno guess who pays for a rebuild or a new engine, here's a little hint it won't be the Dyno operator or the company he represents. I have been in the motorcycle business 35 years and worked on thousands of bikes and never once needed a Dyno to help diagnose a performance issue.
If you have changed your fuel delivery system, air filter size or flow rate, mufflers or exhaust system or a significant change in altitude your carburetors need re-tuning and if your fuel system (gas tank, filters, fuel valve and carburetor) is contaminated with ethanol sludge, varnish, rust, dirt, water etc. or your bike has been sitting for months or years without running these components must be "PROPERLY" cleaned and reassembled "CORRECTLY" before any adjustments can be made. Tuning your carburetor is fairly simple once you understand the basic principals. You engine is a simple airbox sucking air in and blowing it out, it is finely tuned at the factory for maximum performance once you upset that delicate balance by changing air filters, camshafts or exhaust systems your performance may go down the and the engine may run poorly, you need to compensate the air-fuel mixture in the carburetor in order for the engine to run smoothly and at peak performance. If you are running multi carburetors you need to sync them first and make sure your air cleaner element is clean and dry for paper elements or lightly oiled for foam and meshed elements and properly installed. Here is how and where you compensate trouble: "TIP" if your engine "BOGS" your not getting enough fuel.
1. Closed to 1/8 throttle is managed by the air screw and pilot/slow jet.
2. 1/8 to 1/4 throttle is managed by the air-screw, pilot/slow jet, and throttle slide.
3. 1/4 to 1/2 throttle is managed by the throttle slide and jet needle.
4. 1/2 to 3/4 throttle is managed by the jet needle, needle jet, main jet, and air jet.
5. 3/4 to wide open throttle is managed by the main jet and air jet.
6. Wide open throttle is managed by the main jet.
If you are running lean, spark plug electrode color is white, engine runs hot and feels like it is starving for fuel you need to go up on the jet size or move the c-clip down one notch. If you are running rich, spark plug color is black or dark gray, engine runs cool, and bogs down when accelerating you need to go down on jet size or move the c-clip up one notch. When your carburetor is properly tuned for maximum performance your spark plug electrode will be a light tan color like coffee with cream. If you prefer fuel economy over performance you can go down on main jet sizes until a satisfactory level of lower performance is acceptable versus MPH, your spark plug color will be whiter and your engine will run warmer. These tuning adjustments will only make improvements if your intake and exhaust system have no air leaks or sealing issues and the entire electrical system is in proper working order and you have no mechanical issues.

Check/Replace spark plugs


You bike might of came with the tools under the seat . Thats all you should need . You might need to remove the fairings and/or gas tank . If you have under 100,000 miles . You shouldnt need new plugs . It dont hurt to check .
